it tells us very much, if anything about tomorrow. and like you said, at the end of the piece, it's 700,000 votes that will be cast in new hampshire tomorrow. i don't think, though, it will be quite as close as people think it will be. what we've seen in the national polls and also in the state polls is a little bit of an uptick for obama. i think that the democrats are cautiously optimistic about tomorrow. and mitt romney is hoping that everything breaks in his favor. but that's a long shot. it's a real long shot. so i think at this hour, going into tomorrow, the democrats have a little bit of wind at their back. >> ben smith, what i thought was interesting about that result in dixville notch, the reality is, all the independents had voted for barack obama and not mitt romney. is that an ominous sign for mitt romney? >> i'm not sure i want to read a whole lot into that. i think the absolute nightmare scenario for this election is what you just saw there, something close to a tie, something that does not resolve tomorrow and that is something that is something both campaigns are genuine
to react to all of the events and if you have questions tweet us@piers tonight. we will begin on the long hard commute for millions of new yorkers. it's a rough time for many new yorkers. obviously a rough time for many people on the east coast. in new york it seems as almost two cities now. you have the half with power, upwards of 40th street and below 40th street a nightmare with no power. traffic, absolute chaos out there. i had to walk earlier because it was gridlock. what can you tell me about the subway, about power and when new york will be back on its feet? >> well, that's a question a lot of people are asking. it is obvious from what we witnessed today it will take a while before new york gets to what it used to be. today, what we witnessed, thousands of people walking across the queensboro bridge. some trying to make it home tonight. that's what we have been seeing throughout the day, not just here at the queensboro bridge but also at the brooklyn bridge. saw that as well. people trying to get in and out of the city without subway service, without train service. foot was the onl
>>> that's it for us. thank you for watching. > good evening. breaking news tonight in new york, where after days without power from hurricane sandy, the lights are beginning to slowly go back on in lower manhattan and beyond. it is slow, but it is happening. mayor michael bloomberg says most of the power in manhattan should return by midnight tonight, although some people will be left without it for another week. sandy is gone, but misery continues as so many devastated. today the death toll climbed to 97 people. staten island neighborhoods swept away. homeland security secretary janet napolitano toured the area, vowing to do everything she could to help. plus, after insisting this sunday's new york city marathon would go on, mayor bloomberg canceled the race. many were outraged the city would take valuable efforts away from the recovery efforts for the marathon. tonight, city hall and race officials have called it off. meanwhile, look at this. cars lined up for miles to get gas. drivers in some cases waiting 20 hours as the supply dwindles, fighting with each other. there's on
negotiated with egypt and with the support of the united states, and it promises us what this whole campaign was about. it promises the people of southern israel peace and quiet. it promises them that they no longer have to live in constant fear of an incoming rocket launched from the gaza strip. it promises them for the first time in a very long time the possibility to live a normal life. and from our point of view, if these promises are fulfilled, that's a good thing. >> i understand that also it promises the people of gaza, perhaps, a better future. we're hearing via "the new york times" as i speak to you that the terms also state the underlying grievances of gaza, the movement that impedes through gaza, will be started 24 hours after the cease-fire is in effect. now, that is clearly a big move by israel. >> i think it's important to remember the following. there's cause and there's effect. when we pulled out of gaza in 2005, when we took down our settlements and pulled back to the international frontier, there were no restrictions in place whatsoever. our restrictions were in place when
moments are something that can leave us inspired tonight. here's piers morgan. >>> good evening. breaking news tonight. a nightmare in new york city. hundreds of thousands of people trying to fight their way on buses. traffic at a standstill outside of our studio here in columbus circle. 1.7 million people without power in the wake of superstorm sandy. a storm that killed 56 people. the crisis is far from over. ambulances tonight lining up outside of new york's bellvue hospital to evacuate 700 patients. pumps that supply oil to generators are under water. the new jersey flames raging through the shore town of mantoloking. but picture of the day has to be this. the mutual admiration society saw president and governor chris christie. this is what the president promised the victims of superstorm sandy. >> we are here for you. we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure you get all of the help you need until you rebuild. >> meanwhile, six days until election day, mitt romney is in the must-win state of florida with a new bipartisan tone. >> i've got to be able to reach across the aisle
guest michael moore is here. tweet us tonight. we begin tonight live in manhattan's bridge tonight. jason, it is a rough time for many new yorkers tonight. it is a rough time for people on the east coast. it is almost two cities now. you have above 40th street and below 40th street. chaos. i had to walk here because it was complete gridlock. what can you tell me about when new york will be back on its feet? >> that is a question that a lot of people are asking. it is going to take a while before new york gets to what it used to be. today we witnessed thousands of people walking across the queensboro bridge. that is what we have been seeing throughout the day today. saw that as well. without subway service and train service. foot was the only way to do it. we had the buses running but that was a nightmare for some. actually just more than an hour ago as we were out here as a bus stop we witness ed a crush of people here. some of them had clearly lost their patients and there was swearing going on pushing and shoving and everyone who had been lined up again for hours -- >> tomorrowba
. they also say that there's a great phrase that they use called high propensity voters and those are folks that always come out on election day, and they take a look at those early voting states, in ohio, for instance, where the democrats seem to have a large edge in the early votes, and they say well, that's because they quote, cannibalize their high propensity voters which means they believe the obama team is turning out people that would have shown up on election day anyway, whereas they say the romney team, most of their voters are going to show up on election day. but you get the same thing, i'm sure when you talk to the other side, they will tell you that they look at the math and they just don't see a way that the president is not going to win. it really is like parallel universes talking to these two campaigns. >> let's go to jessica yellin, who has been following president obama today. jessica, how would you describe the mood in the president's camp? clearly there's not that kind of huge euphoria we saw four years ago but that doesn't necessarily mean his vote won't come out and r
does it all end? >> reporter: well, it all ended with us not getting any gas. it looks like a ghost town here. you can see they were open for a good nine hours. they had the supply but those lines just sucked it all up. too many customers and eventually they had to shut down tonight. so a lot of people were turned back and yes, piers, we went to two different places, spent the whole afternoon in two different lines, and came up dry. that's happening to a lot of people. some are luckier than others but i got to tell you, it's been very impressive at least here in parts of new jersey where i was, to see how many people were helping each other, sometimes pushing cars to get to the fuel pump, and other people being as calm as they possibly could and saying look, we know that it's a bad situation, we know that they're trying to do the best they can, and we just have to go with the flow here and come back and try again tomorrow. but a lot of people were hitting up 15, 16, 20 stations and still not finding anything. >> nate silva, the "new york times" pollster of pollsters, tweeted just no

"piers morgan tonight" starts right now. >>> good evening. looking live at the white house tonight. we've got breaking news on the president tonight. i'm going to show you one of the most extraordinary pieces of video i think i have ever seen of any political leader. it was shown yesterday at obama campaign headquarters in chicago just hours after barack obama's re-elected. it shows the leader of the free world as i have never seen him, you probably haven't seen him either. raw, exhausted and reduced to open tears by the efforts of his young campaign workers. and by the thought of what he himself has accomplished. it's one of those things you've got to watch in its entirety. here it is, arguably barack obama's finest ever speech. >> i try to picture myself when i was your age and i first moved to chicago at the age of 25, and i had this vague inkling about making a difference. i didn't really know how to do it. i didn't have a structure. and there wasn't a

. it's about others. it's about us as a community, as a national community, and he is always looking for how to bring out the best and do the best by the people he serves. and i think he saw his campaign staff and the campaign leadership as among those he serves and he certainly sees the american people as those he serves. that's his motivation and it's a powerful thing and people see that core in him and in the campaign. >> i want to bring in dan rather, managing editor of dan rather reports on access tv. you have known almost every president going back 50 years. have you ever seen one quite that candid and raw? >> no. i'm not sure there has ever been any american president, perhaps no world leader that i know of in my lifetime, who has come out with that raw emotion in a very attractive way. again, whether you like his politics or not, for a lot of people this is going to be a case of the ice man cracketh because he had this image of president barack obama as cool, ice water in his veins kind of person, and he can be that way, but i think this is unique in the history of the americ
